About me

I am a humanistic Counsellor & Psychodynamic Psychotherapist with over ten years experience of providing counselling and psychotherapy in private practise, as well as an NHS GP practise and London based organisations such as Freshstart Psychotherapy, the Caravan Counselling and Mind In Enfield.

I provide a discrete and confidential service for people seeking a safe, compassionate and non-judgemental environment in which to approach difficult feelings and find healing.

Everyone has their own reason for seeking someone to talk to. It might be something that seems quite tangible, like relationship problems, stress at work, bereavement, or a trauma from your past. Alternatively, it could be a general sense of unease and unhappiness, a lack of direction, and a feeling that something has to change – despite not knowing what that "something" is.

Talking to friends and relatives, even those closest to you, doesn't always soothe and strengthen in the way you need it too. This is where I come in. As a transpersonal therapist, my approach encompasses the "whole you", from your daily waking thoughts and concerns to the hidden currents of your unconscious.

We'll work together at your pace, in a confidential environment, so that you can come to a new understanding of yourself and change your life for the better. I currently have spaces in Cornwall, bi-monthly sessions in Paddington, London, as well as low cost on line sessions, within North London, Tottenham/Edmonton and the surrounding areas.

Face to face sessions will resume once the current lockdown and future tier systems allow for safe in person contact.
